Once in a while you come across an extraordinary human being, who takes it upon himself to go above and beyond to protect what others so freely take for granted; Mother Earth. We first met Jayantha of Katana Upcycle a few weeks ago. Under the blazing heat, in a roadside stall, trying to create awareness about his 100% recycled stationary products. What caught our attention the most is the humility he possessed and his utmost dedication to saving our planet by recycling waste products and creating something reusable. We then visited him at his home/work place and was amazed to find what he accomplished with such little resources. Jayantha goes personally to collect raw material (waste). Together with some folks from the neighborhood, they prepare the components necessary. With the end result being, outstandingly beautiful stationary products. The drive and passion Jayantha has for what he believes in, can only be described as […]

Mosquitoes are aquatic insects which are notorious for spreading dangerous deceases such as Dengue, Filarial, Malaria & Japanese Encephalitis. They breed in water and after a complete metamorphosis reach adulthood, at which time, they become a nuisance and a vector. Sri Lanka itself has been plagued by Mosquito afflicted diseases severely over different time durations over the past few years. In some cases, they have turned out to be quite fatal taking away the lives of plenty. Like any disease, early identification and control is key to treating them, although being mindful and preventing them is a more favourable outcome. Mosquito treatments are generally divided into two (02) segments i.e. Larvae Control Treatment – Treatment is carried out to water pools or containers of all sizes. They breed in clear water as well as contaminated water, depending on the species. Adult Mosquito Control – Though it is the female mosquito […]
